I am curious if I will have any problem removing the factory brake on my 20 inch Bushmaster and installing the MSTN brake? I have a barrel wrench, armorers tool and strap wrench. Any one done this before that can give me any pointers?

It's not permanantly attached is it? If not, it's pretty easy to do. Just give it a little muscle and it will loosen up pretty easy.

Make sure it's not permanently attached before you start!

It appears to have a black washer under it and no signs that its permenent. Its a bird cage style build after the ban sunset.

Ok then, just wrench it off. Might take some effort at first but it will go.

It came off easy with a barrel wrench and torque wrench combo. Thanks

can't you just use an adjustable wrench found in any home shop?

Yes it would have worked if you can get enough leverage.
